A splash of authentic flavour for Szechuan's hot & sour soup.

Seasoned with a wonderful sharp kick of spice to contrast its delicious umami depth, Szechuan's famously juicy broth comes easy to pour and prepare with the tasty aid of this instant spice paste. A rich soy sauce base that packs a punch of zesty red chilli and vinegar, this paste balances its savoury sharpness with just the right amount of sweet flavour, to make a broth that's divinely filling and refreshing. Best garnished with crunchy mushrooms and beans so you can really squeeze out the succulent spice, turn this simple paste into an eclectic soup, tingling with flavour. Made in Thailand.

I used this paste to make a large batch of soup. The package only has one packet in so you can't divide it well. I made it with mushroom, chicken stock and carrots. It definitely has a kick and is a lot more saltier than I'd anticipated.
Easy to use and make flavourful soup. You can use what ever meat fish or vegetables to produce a tasty soup in minutes
Only hot and sour mix I love!
